    Shipping Costs

    There are some things you can do to make shipping more inexpensive. The most effective way is to choose the best shipping method for your purchase, considering cost versus shipping time. USPS Priority Mail is a fast, inexpensive option for any item weighing less than one pound. Now that the post office has the Flat Rate boxes even heavier items can go Priority if they’ll fit in a Flat Rate box. For heavy items, UPS Ground is the better choice.

    To experiment with shipping costs, you can select a shipping method and proceed to the order screen to calculate your total without any obligation to complete the order. You can then click the "back" button on your browser and try a different shipping method to see its cost. You can do this as many times as you like until you find a shipping cost and method that works best for you.

    Shipping Methods

    We ship with various methods from The United States Postal Service (USPS) and UPS. Each of these methods are described below.

    USPS PRIORITY Canada - This shipping option is for shipping to Canada only. We only offer this shipping method for shipping to Canada. The USPS estimates that it will take 6 to 10 business days for delivery.

    USPS Parcel Post - This is our slowest but often cheapest shipping method. This mail service is not guaranteed to arrive at any specific time. It can take up to 2 - 4 weeks for delivery.

    USPS Priority Mail - The Postal Service's Priority Mail option is inexpensive for lighter packages and is very fast. Priority packages usually take two to three days and deliver nationwide, including Saturday delivery. Priority Mail shipments are not guaranteed to arrive within a specific timeframe.

    UPS Ground- UPS Ground is a good shipping method for heavier packages and they have a guaranteed delivery schedule (refer to UPS map below).

    UPS 3-Day Select – This is an express shipping method that guarantees delivery within three business days (not including Saturdays or Sundays) of shipment. Depending on location, UPS ground may be just as fast.

    Delivery Schedule

    USPS Priority Mail is our bang-for-the-buck champ. You can expect your Priority package in 2-3 days (no Sunday delivery) but Priority Mail is not on a guaranteed time schedule. USPS Parcel Post can be as fast as three days and as long as two weeks and Parcel does not follow a guaranteed time schedule. 3-Day Select is guaranteed to arrive within the specified time (not including Saturdays or Sundays). UPS Ground is also guaranteed and follows a delivery schedule according to the map below (no weekend delivery).



  • International
  • Customs and import duties may be applied to International orders when the shipment reaches its destination. Such charges are the responsibility of the recipient of your order and vary from country to country. Contact your local customs office for details.

    Shipping laws are different in each country. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to verify whether the country to which you are shipping permits the shipment of your products. Optimum Preparedness is not responsible for any direct, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages that arise from improper international shipping practices.
